Product Description

NOTE : IF YOU ARE ORDERING A COMPLETE DRIVE UNIT (OPTION 2, $229.99) YOU WILL NEED TO SEND US YOUR UNIT TO BE REBUILT OR WAIT APPROX. 2-3 MONTHS.  I DONT HAVE DRIVE UNITS TO REBUILD SINCE PEOPLE ARENT SENDING CORES BACK VERY QUICKLY.  IF YOU ORDER THE COMPLETE REBUILT UNIT PLEASE CONTACT US VIA EMAIL TO GET THE SEND IN ADDRESS AND WE CAN USUALLY REBUILD THE UNIT SAME DAY AND SHIP BACK OUT.

 

*** You Cannot Just Install a Metal Gear Without Also Changing The Motor To The GruvenParts INTERNALLY GROUNDED MOTOR !  You Will Short Out the Body Control Module.  All Of Our Kits Come With New Motors Which Are Internally Grounded and Work With Metal Gears - So Don't Just Replace the Gear, You Must Replace Both Gear AND Motor When Going to Metal !!! ***

 

HIGH STRENGTH GEAR BRASS ... BECAUSE PLASTIC GEARS BREAK - That's Why You Are On This Page To Begin With !!!!

 ** Click HERE for the NEW GruvenParts Installation Video **

** Click HERE for the Mirror Gear DIY Article for Full Size GM Trucks **  or (Download PDF)

** Click HERE for the Traverse/Acadia/Outlook Supplemental Instructions **

 

** 2 Options Are Now Available ***

Note that if you chose Option 2, you will either need to send in your unit for repair directly, or wait approximately 2 months for us to get a unit to repair.  These are becoming hard to find and people arent returning their cores as often anymore for some reason.  We can usually repair sent in units same day to minimize down time as you cant install the mirror without the drive unit in place.

Option 1: 

Buy strengthened brass gears pre-mounted to a new machined steel main spiral shaft + hi-torque motor in quantity 1 set for 1 mirror or 2 sets for 2 mirrors ($64.99 / $99.99).  

Option 2:

Buy a rebuilt complete motor drive unit with new hi-torque motor and brass gear pre-installed and tested ($229.99 minus $30 core return = $199.99).  Please note when buying the complete drive unit, you must choose passenger side or drivers side, and there is a $30 core refund so be sure to send back your old assembly in repairable condition.  Core returns are only applicable to complete drive units and when you are ready to return your core, please email paul@gruvenparts.com for instructions.  Your CORE must be rebuildable.  We cannot accept units which have parts other than the motor/spur gear broken as cores as we would have no way to rebuild them.

***** PLEASE NOTE WHEN ORDERING THE COMPLETE DRIVE UNIT - If you are in a hurry for this, its best to check with us to see if we have any cores.  It could be 4-6 weeks to receive this, based on how many units we have in the shop.  People do not send back their cores very quickly, so we are usually waiting.  You can send in your own unit to be worked as well, and we will apply the $30 core when you send in and try to work it same day or very quick.  We are currently on a 2 Month Back Order Unless You Can Send In Your Unit to be Rebuilt

 

Other Parts Available :

We also carry a limited number of used parts to service these mirrors in case you loose or break something.  We have some of everything, so just email paul@gruvenparts.com if you need something.  We do now have some used mirror glass drive units for both sides - these are the little motorized units that actually adjust the angle of the mirror glass.

  

** Product Description **

GruvenParts.com is pleased to announce replacement strengthened BRASS spur gears and high torque INTERNALLY GROUNDED motors (OEM MOTOR WONT WORK WITH METAL) for the power folding mirrors on 2007-2014 GM trucks including Acadia, Traverse, Enclave, Escalade, Silverado, Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, Sierra, Yukon, and Denali.  Also fits ALL 2007-Present GMC pick-up trucks. As many have discovered, the folding mirror assembly on these trucks suffers from a thin, weak, plastic spur gear mounted to the main drive shaft.  The plastic spur gear cracks at the slightest impact or just wears out over time causing an inoperable folding mirror.  The GM motors also get weak and die quickly. Unfortunately, GM will only sell you a complete folding mirror assembly, which will cost you from $700-$1,200 ea after labor and paint, depending on the year/make/model.  And that $ would be wasted on another mirror assembly with another weak, plastic spur gear and weak electric motor that will also soon fail.  Don't waste time or hard earned money on more GM parts that will also soon fail!  

GruvenParts.com has addressed this issue by designing a strengthened spur gear made from solid gear BRASS with a thicker cross section to eliminate the stress concentrations which cause fatigue cracking in the GM plastic gear. We have also designed a replacement high torque electric motor to accompany this new metal gear. Our new electric motor is required when switching out to the metal gear, as the ground circuit in the OEM motor does not allow for a metal gear to be installed. You can chose to buy the gear/motor combo for one or both sides with the spur gear pre-attached to a new main shaft or you can buy complete drive units which are rebuilt and already have the new metal gears and hi torque motor installed in them.  

We have thoroughly tested our redesigned spur gear and high torque motor using a new, OEM mirror assembly and computerized test equipment.  Our test samples barely showed any wear whatsoever, and the testing did include random wacks against the mirror, jamming the mirror operation as it was folding, and manually stressing the mechanism all in an attempt the break the gear.  Each sample was tested more than 5,000 open/close cycles and was still going strong at that point !  

This product carries a LIFETIME WARRANTY!  Provided you don't burn the vehicle, or otherwise smash the mirror into something, you can send back the motor drive unit to us and we'll replace the gear assembly and get it working again free of charge.  You would only be responsible for shipping under this warranty.

  1. Works Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2021

    Replaced one side with a rebuilt and saw such a difference I am doing the other. Watched video and with already working on one gained the confidence to rebuild the second one by myself. Very smooth and quiet operation. Highly recommend.


  2. WORKS GREAT 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2021

    The part is exactly as described in the video. It is a 3 out of 5 wrench's to install.
    The hardest part of the install is removing the glass assembly. I did not see in the video, which is great, that the glass must be pushed in at the center to latch into the round rings. That is where it pivots when moving. It is also the part that holds it in when removing it from the 4 other clips. So when removing the glass you need to pop it out from the center after you release the 4 outer locks. Any way it now works great and I can fold it in to keep it from being broken in tight parking spots. Thank you Gruven!!


  3. Time and money saver! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2021

    Save yourself some time and money by replacing the gear AND the motor even if there's nothing wrong with the factory motor. You'll need the new insulated motor to use a metal gear. After a week of ordering/waiting/installing/testing parts from elsewhere, I found and ordered this set. Came in quick and installed in less than 30 minutes. It works flawlessly! The other folding mirror will break soon (age) but I already know where to go for a quick and sure fix.


  4. Excellent these work really well 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2021

    I made the mistake of buying some replacement mirror gears for $20 on eBay, They just never meshed properly with the Existing motors, I wasted hours and lots of frustration, finally had to give up. THEN I found these gears with Motors and excellent instructions ...and now my mirrors are perfect. Don't waste your money on eBay , spend the $99 and do it properly with these parts with the motor. They seriously are worth the money and the quality is great. Thank you


  5. Install was a Challenge, Gruven part is TERRIFIC!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2021

    The video showing the steps to install the new part was right on! Disassembling the GM mirror, and reassembling with the new part was time consuming but went exactly as shown in the video. The new gear and motor assembly works great It has been installed for a couple of months, no problems.


  6. power mirror motors 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2021

    I recently installed a driver and passenger motor to fix my dad's 2007 Escalade power mirrors. Gruvenparts.com did an awesome job of providing me with parts. The metal worm gear should last for years compared to the original part made of plastic.


  7. this new motor is great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2021

    I bought this to replace the one in the "new" mirror I got from eBay that only worked for 81 days before the plastic gear broke. This new unit in my mirror folds fast, I am impressed it actually folds in faster than my original one that is still on the passenger side. very pleased with its performance.


  8. Works good, but 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Sep 2021

    Metal gear is more noisy than plastic. Thanks for having the parts.


  9. works great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Aug 2021

    Works great


  10. Great Part, Easy Install 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2021

    Motor and gear are of a much higher quality than OEM. Install was a breeze, followed step by step instructions on video. Most difficult part of install was dealing with the removal/install of the mirror, it "fights you most of the way".
